“Excellent Value for Money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We stayed at Pension Peters for four nights during the weekend of 28 September to 1 October (Berlin Marathon). The rooms are spotlessly clean and tidy as are the beds and the excellent shower. The hotel itself is situated in the prestigious SavignyPlatz and is close to a large number of cafes and restaurants and the S Bahn. Pension Peters represents excellent value for money and I recommend it.

While I was initially a bit worried about our room based on the condition and cleanliness of the hallways, I was pleasantly relieved when we entered our room. Our room was clean and spare but completely sufficient for our needs. The free wifi was a bit tricky at times, but overall didn't prevent us from doing what we needed to do online. Breakfast was the same everyday, but there was enough variety for me, and it was all good. It's conveniently located to both an S-Bahn and U-Bahn station, and the bus from the airport dropped us off just a few blocks away. A good value option.

I was really pleased with our 4 night stay at the Pension Peters. The location was good, and we always felt safe in the neighborhood; being near the S-Bahn and the Bahnhof Zoo made it easy to get around town. The rooms were small but nice, and the shower was great. The breakfast was especially good. I enjoyed the free WiFi, and my travel buddy enjoyed the computer available for guests who didn't bring theirs along. One tip about the WiFi; you have to sign in frequently; for some reason it doesn't remember you, but don't worry about it, it is free. Daisy gave us a thorough orientation to the city when we arrived, and the hotel staff was friendly and always available to help. The art in the rooms was rather unusual, but it amused us. I would be glad to stay here again, it was a good experience.

Although this is highly rated by many and recommended by a renowned "Back-Door Traveler", I was somewhat underwhelmed. We were assigned a small room #6 which is across a courtyard from the main building. Although it was shielded from the noise that would be expected on such a busy street, we were awakened early by the rattling and rolling of nearby garbage bins. Our room was spartan with just a wardrobe, two chairs and table. There was no place to set our cases to load or unload. Lino floors with a couple of throw rugs...
We asked for advice for finding a secure parking lot for our rented van and were told, "I ride public transportation and don't know about that stuff". I would think that an innkeeper ought to know something about the neighborhood. After a bit of a search, we found a garage just 100 meters away. Got one recommendation for a restaurant but, again, found numerous offerings at nearby, less expensive and pretentious eateries. The neighborhood is fine but it is no short walk to either places to hop on either public or private tours buses.
The breakfast was good enough but I've had comparable at hostels that charge about one third the price for a night's stay. They prefer cash payment but will take credit card for a 3.5% upcharge. For the price of the room, $100+, you would think they could absorb the card charges.
Friendly enough staff, spartan rooms, only fair location, okay breakfast= over priced, over lauded.

Room Tip: Traveled in a party of six and visited three rooms. All had their drawbacks. If ever I went back...

I had a very small room with the bathroom next door. The bathroom was bigger than the bedroom. Still as a single traveler with only a large backpack the small room was okay. No A-C, free wi-fi in room, and very clean room and bathroom. Great location with very short walk to S-Bahn. Plenty of shops, food options, etc. nearby. Good budget option.

I just returned from a marvelous trip to Berlin, Prague and Budapest. In Berlin, we had the pleasure of staying at Pension Peters. Although, no elevator, the exercise of walking the stairs was good for us after the many wonderful meals we enjoyed in Berlin. The staff we met were friendly and helpful and the location of the hotel was perfect, close to the U-bahn and bus station. We always felt safe and ventured out on our own finding some wonderful restaurants very close by. We chose the family room which was large, very clean and had a wonderful shower (good water pressure). The breakfast was great (loved the eggs) and we enjoyed visiting with people in the morning. Internet access in the lobby was a plus for me. We have good memories of our stay in Berlin and our stay with Pension Peters. I would return to Pension Peters and would definitely recommend them to my friends.

We spent three nights at this hotel a few days ago, and were very pleased with our choice of hotel in Berlin.

The location is great, with lots of public transportation choices a short walk away, many restaurants nearby, Ku'damm a few blocks off, etc.

The hosts were very friendly and helpful.

Regarding credit card usage: they certainly take American credit cards, though there's a small surcharge if you choose to pay that way.

The breakfast featured eggs, various breads, cold cuts, cheeses, jams, jellies, cereals, etc.

Our room was on the third floor (which would be the fourth floor in the US), overlooking Kantstrasse, which is a busy street, though most the noise disappeared with the double-paned windows closed. The room was clean and spacious.
